People often assume that older people are not interested in sex. A new survey from Southern California suggests that is not true. 800 women between the ages 40 and 82 answered questions about their sexual activity and satisfaction. Roughly half reported sexual activity within the past month. A majority of those reported arousal, lubrication and orgasm most of the time. About one-third reported low libido. Women who reported feeling emotionally close to their partners during sex had better sexual outcomes.
